I just got two questions from a fan - maybe you can help me/him.
There is one episode early on where Steve Bud and Al are all talking and Steve says something like "your son stinks Al" Al responds with "Now wait just a second Steve he's my son....don't you think I know he stinks." I've looked everywhere but can't find it. I think it may the episode from the opening credits of season 3 with Steve holding the softball and has the ice pack on his head. Also it is not Episode 924: Shoeless Al, with a similiar joke this time involving Bob. My next question is, is there an episode where Bud (he is younger in this episode) does really well at pitching and Al is real proud of him...only to find out Bud was cheating by using a grease ball? I've looked everywhere and can't find it. Again sorry to ask two and help you can give is greatly appreciated.
As far as I can remember the "he is my son" only appears in #924 (but he's looking for another episode)
Al: " We're gonna have to go with our alternate."
Bob: " But Bud stinks."
Al: " He's my son. Don't you think I know he stinks."
Since we are at the moment building a house I have no access to my DVD collection to do some more research.
